    I use PCAM Pro. The RED app which is free has a DOF calculator. Do not use Digital DoF (Indie Film Gear) - damn thing never worked for me. For me the list of cameras disappeared 80% of the time,...

    Puritans will scream that professionals will never use AF, but damn I would love it as an option that I could turn on and off.

    The answer is sort of yes, but if you primarily plan on shooting video, I would go with the RED. If you primarily want to shoot stills I would go with a DSLR. If you have a RED, you will want to...

    I have the AMD 2950x and pretty much get full 6k Dragon playback in PP. I also have 2 x 1080Ti GPUs for Davinci (excellent performance). 64GB DDR4 RAM.

    I think it sucks RED will stop supporting Dragons. I love my Dragon and don't really have any reason to change. I think the RED Epic Dragon is the best value in the used camera market.
  12. Is there a problem with black, white, or red cars?

    When the recruiters near me want extras with a car for TV shows or movies, they always state no black, white, or red cars? Is because it would draw attention away from the main characters/cars or is...

    I think it was insane for RED to allow any of this Jinni talk in the first place. They own this website. Why allow all this bitching and moaning on a website they own? Bitch on Facebook or Twitter. ...

    I always think of CPU for PP and GPUs for DR. I have an AMD Threadripper 2950x and I don't have a delay with RED Dragon 6k footage in PP. I have 2 x 1080Ti GPUs and no delay in DR. DR can level load...

    I have Aputures. I bought 25' header cables and can easily put them high with any modifier. The Bowen's mount is a little fiddly but otherwise I love them. Versatile and powerful.
